Df03, purple, 100% opaque. Nose had lemon meringue. Chewy, and full of young tannic grip.

Opaque, deep red. Bramble and purple fruit on the nose, gentle tannins on the palate. Tannins get very big but support the slightly dirty fruit, but the tannins dominate at the moment. 86/100.

Very dark. Good minty aroma. Good flavours but closed down. Will be good.
